Members of the audience at Amy Schumer’s Sunday special in Tampa, Florida booed and walked out of the show after the comedian attacked Donald Trump and his supporters.
About halfway through her set at the Amelie Arena, Schumer invited a Trump supporter named “Dave” to come up on stage and explain how anyone could support the Republican nominee.
“I appreciate you coming up,” she told Dave. “I am in no way trying to shame you. I just really want to know how Trump has your vote?”
Dave explained that he is a “Republican in name only” and hasn’t voted for a GOP candidate since Ronald Reagan, but he “can’t trust Hillary,” which earned cheers from the crowd.
Schumer began to press Dave about if he gets worried “Trump will be impulsive and get us in a lot of fucking trouble” before sending him back to the audience.
“That was cool, to see why one guy — who doesn’t seem like a psychopath — why he would want to vote for an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake- college-starting monster.”
Things really went south after the “Trainwreck” star stated Trump “wants to finger his daughter.”

“Just so you know, if you yell out, you’re going to get thrown out,” she yelled at the crowd. “If you yell, I’m going to throw you out. Ok, people are booing, so go.”
According to the Tampa Bay Times, roughly 200 people walked out of the show once Schumer began her political rant.
